by: JoseNovember 9, 2011

Huawei Technologies, maker of quality and affordable smartphones, has just raised the bar a notch higher by announcing two new Android devices. The Huawei Vision and the Huawei MediaPad are Huawei’s latest Android ammo in its arsenal, presumably to make Huawei compete better in the Android gadgets arena.

The Vision and the MediaPad are positioned to first set foot on U.K. soil before other countries. The U.S. market will have to wait a bit longer for these two gadgets’ arrival. The Vision would already be available in the U.K. this Christmas while the MediaPad will be available early 2012.

The Huawei Vision is an Android smartphone that runs Android 2.3 [...]

Verizon Wireless Makes It Officially Official – Galaxy Nexus Is Coming

by: Will G.October 22, 2011

It has been rumored for months, as to whether or not Verizon Wireless will be receiving the Galaxy Nexus. But, just yesterday -Verizon announced that the Galaxy Nexus will be coming to retailers “later this year”. In the interest of time, many think that the phone could possibly be released in less than 3 weeks.

According to the screenshot by Android Central, the Galaxy Nexus smartphone will be launched on November 10, but is this really true? The launch date could be fact, however Android Central never relased the source of the image, making the information a little suspicious.

Well, some of the information this image produced consist of a price for [...]

HTC Amaze 4G Starts Shipping Out Today, Amazing Camera Onboard

by: Ken EastOctober 12, 2011

T-Mobile’s latest addition to its line-up of high-end Android smartphones is the HTC Amaze 4G. Pre-orders for the awaited device started on Monday this week and units are expected to be shipped out starting today.

The price of the HTC Amaze 4G is US$260 (with a new 2-year contract on T-Mobile and after US$50 mail-in rebate).

Following the HTC myTouch 4G Slide (also on T-Mobile), the HTC Amaze 4G  will be another camera-centric [...]

S4 vs Tegra 3 vs OMAP 4470 vs Exynos 4212: Strong-ARMed Superchip Showdown!

by: LucianOctober 10, 2011

The first half of next year should get very interesting  for mobile devices. We’re expecting the Qualcomm S4, NVIDIA Kal-El, Texas Instruments OMAP 4470, and Samsung’s new Exynos 4212 chips to arrive then. But, even if these devices will all arrive in the first half of 2012, we don’t know the exact dates–and that might make a difference.

For example, if one of them is 30% better than the other, but arrives in June, while the other arrives in January, then it might not mean much, because the January chip will probably have an upgraded version by June, too, and might equal or even surpass the original “better” chip. So, keep that in [...]

HTC to Use Nvidia Kal-El Chips in 2012?

by: LucianOctober 1, 2011

Could this be the end of HTC’s exclusive use of Qualcomm chips? In a recent interview of HTC’s VP of Marketing with GSMArena, he said there’s actually “no exclusive deal” between HTC and Qualcomm, and when asked what other chips they could use, he said “Nvidia or TI-powered smartphones and tablets are possible in the future.”

Qualcomm have done very well for themselves with the rise of touchscreen smartphones. They managed to grab TI’s longstanding leadership position, which happened with the rise of Android and the fall of Nokia and RIM (who mainly used TI chips).

But perhaps the biggest reason Qualcomm got this position is [...]

LG Esteem Full Specs – Gingerbread and 4G LTE on MetroPCS

by: Matthew SabatiniSeptember 28, 2011

Leaked photos of the LG Esteem recently showed up in the LG Partner Portal and they suggest that MetroPCS will be making further moves into the world of Android and LTE 4G connectivity with this particular device.

Some in the blogosphere have reported that you can get your hands on this phone for a mere $350 after a $100 mail-in rebate. And, while there there is no confirmed release date, rumors had suggested that September 23rd would be the day. However, due to the fact that it is September 28th, that guess is out of the picture. However, it leads us to believe that the true date is just around the corner.

Will the Nexus Prime Still Use a Dual Core 1.5 Ghz OMAP 4460?

by: LucianSeptember 24, 2011

A few days ago, Archos announced that their upcoming tablets that were supposed to have a dual core 1.5 Ghz OMAP 4460 processor in them, won’t have that chip anymore, because it was delayed by TI until early 2012. Archos will now settle for an overclocked OMAP 4430 with 1.2 Ghz per core.

So the question is, does this affect only Archos, or does it affect everyone who was planning on using the OMAP 4460 this year? Because that would mean the Nexus Prime won’t have it, either, and it was originally rumored it will, because people found code that seemed to suggest Ice-Cream Sandwich will be optimized for it.

Here’s what I think. If Google was in [...]
